Objective: Construct a solar ground mount array from an existing home solar panel system

  • Lay a separate run of cables from the solar ground mount array to the house, either within the same ditch as the new system or by installing a combiner at the array to connect with the new ground mount.
  • Install the old panels and microinverters onto the new ground mount structure.
  • Install a combiner panel at the ground mount to ensure proper connection.
  • Account for any necessary wire size adjustments from the combined array to the house if the arrays are being merged.
  • Replace the metal roof as part of the project.
  • Conditionally ensure the functionality of all old microinverters after being reconnected if they are to be reused.

The project began with a comprehensive assessment of the existing solar system, which involved evaluating its performance by accessing monitoring data.

Operation and Overview: Seamless Migration Of Residential Solar Panel System Transfer To Solar Array

The project began with a comprehensive assessment of the existing solar system, which involved evaluating its performance by accessing monitoring data. Specific compatibility issues were identified, laying the foundation for the migration process. The subsequent steps involved safely removing 18 panels (divided into 3 arrays) from the original home’s roof, temporarily caulking the resulting holes until roof replacement, and installing a new solar ground mount frame.

This solar ground mount could either be a separate structure or a combined array configuration using both old and new panels.

This solar ground mount could either be a separate structure or a combined array configuration using both old and new panels. The installation also included laying separate cables from the ground mount to the house, either within the same ditch as the new system or by incorporating a combiner panel for connection.

Additionally, the project encompassed reinstallation of the old panels and microinverters onto the new ground mount structure, ensuring proper connection with the installation of a combiner panel. Wire size adjustments were accounted for if merging arrays into one configuration, and the metal roof was replaced as part of the overall project. Lastly, conditional checks were performed to verify the functionality of all old microinverters after reconnection.

Solar Panel Array Migration Success

The successful migration of the residential solar panel system showcased a seamless transfer process. Through a meticulous assessment and compatibility evaluation, the existing system was disassembled with utmost care.

The new solar ground mount frame, whether separate or combined, provided a sturdy foundation for the installation of the panels and microinverters. Cables were expertly laid from the ground mount to the house, and necessary wire size adjustments were made for merged arrays. The project also ensured a smooth transition by temporarily caulking roof holes, replacing the metal roof, and thoroughly testing the functionality of all components.
